My preferred methods of payment are cash or cheque or PAYPAL. I am unable to take debit or credit cards.
On booking a cake, I ask for a deposit. (The % will be depending on the final invoice price). This can be posted or delivered if you need to deliver other accessories like ribbons for your special creation.
This deposit secures my time and ensures that I have enough time to make your special cake, and have it just perfect for you.
I then ask for the balance of the invoice at the time of collection, with the exception of any cakes which I will be setting up at your venue. In these cases I ask for the final balance to be paid 7 days before your Special Day.
